LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A big honor and a big surprise came Thursday for a WAVE Country woman who goes above and beyond her job as an in home caregiver.

Molly Hawkins works with BrightStar Care. She assists a Korean War Veteran whose family has taken quite the liking to her.

"Molly's personality is a brilliant balance of tough and tender," the man's granddaughter said. "Molly doesn't simply work for granddad she works with him."

His family nominated Molly for the Caregiver of the Year award. Thursday, she was surprised with the news.

"I didn't expect to get so close to the families, but meeting them and seeing them every day made me feel a part of their own families," Molly told us.

She has only worked for BrightStar for a year.
